Spring Break isn’t just for college kids. It’s for your little ones, your bigger ones—and, of course, you. Whether you have an extended time off with the family, or just an extra day or two, there are plenty of events and activities happening across the country that will give you the answer to “What will we do now?”
Tailor-made for a day out with the family, this museum is filled with exhibitions that will excite you no matter your age. Dinosphere takes you into a world before our time, Take Me There: China provides a full immersion into Chinese culture and Inside Hollywood Film & TV goes behind the scenes of such popular hits as Men in Black and Spider-Man.
Hit the slopes! It doesn’t matter if you’re an old pro or a novice, Park City has a hill for you. They have signature programs for kids that provide more attentive lessons for your children, and Ski and Snowboard School for adults and a variety of hills for a full day of fun.
If you’re on the west coast, this popular theme park has a brand new attraction that may be worthy of a day trip. The Simpsons Ride brings you into the world of The Simpsons as they ride with you through a midway. (And, in case you’re planning to visit later in the year, the park will unveil another new ride in the summer called Fast & Furious—Supercharged).
The National Park Foundation wants to get you back to nature. The foundation works in partnership with the National Park Service and they’ve highlighted a number of incredible parks across the country to visit. Top picks include the Music of the Mountains festival at Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee; taking a ranger-led tour through the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, Kansas; and gazing at more than 380 species of birds at Padre Island National Seashore, Texas.
Fun Around the Corner
Your local library is often a treasure trove of ways to have fun close to home.

The New York Public Library routinely hosts Teen Tech sessions and various movie screenings.
